It's finally hit me....

Yes, a SS2 as a web server can saturate any pipe anyone of us is likely to 
afford, but....

	- I suspect you think of a web server like this and mean "serving static 
pages", not running some dynamic backend or server-side include lashup like 
seems to be the rage today.  You might still achieve saturation, but not, I 
would suspect, with acceptable latency.

	- remember, a PC with an 8bit bic could saturate ethernet.  This did not 
meat it was useful while doing so.
